Highly Successful Corporate Events
Highly Strung have a perfectly crafted selection of music
to make your corporate event or private function a success.
The main criteria are that the music is well known and is performed with enthusiasm and enjoyment.
A highlight of an evening with Highly Strung is their unique ability to move from table to table playing requests for your guests. This encourages a warm relaxed atmosphere in the room while at the same time allowing for conversation and networking at other tables.
Highly Strung can perform acoustically, or with minimal amplification. This gives them the freedom to position themselves anywhere in the venue, providing ambience, or to mingle with the guests, playing their requests if invited.
However, if required in larger venues, or where dancing is preferred, sound reinforcement can be provided.

Highly Strung often perform as a trio or quartet, with the inclusion of ex Hat Trick violinist Mary O'Mahony, or their son Joey McCoy, an accomplished guitarist. The group can be augmented with extra musicians: eg bass, drums, sax, flute and percussion, for a bigger sound and greater visual impact.
From an intimate cocktail gathering to a full-on dance party, they will, in consultation with you, provide exactly the right combination of music and musicians to guarantee the success of your event.
Fees start at $500 for a two hour performance.
What satisfied clients have said about Highly Strung
"It was a great night and you and Bernadette were an absolute hit with our guests. I can't believe two performers could generate such a tremendous sound.....I was looking for the rest of the band!
Thanks for making it such a memorable night."

Venue Management Association (Asia & Pacific)
"An absolute highlight of their performance and one that totally endeared them to our delegates, was their 'wandering' entertainment where three members of the band moved among the tables and played a series of requests, much to everyone's delight. The 'duelling violins' were wonderful"
Peter Russo, CEO Australian Science Teachers' Association
"They are dream performers, Justin and Bernadette McCoy.
I've been following their performances since Hat Trick in the 80s, and have long been enamoured with their talent, and energy.
So versatile are they, they can perform in a multitude of guises, from solo or duo to full team productions.
They exude a warmth on stage that impacts deeply with their audiences. Encore!!!"
"What a night! I know we've had so many successful events with Highly Strung over the years, but wasn't it fantastic to have such a small event and see how every single one of the guests responded so positively to the fantastic music you, Bernadette and Paul performed."
Pamela Wheat, Producer Special Events, ICMS Australia
"I thought the format worked really well & particularly the table requests. I feel the evening was really made by your presence which seems to take the evening from just another party to a total ‘Wow! Night’ which everyone tells me it was. So thank you all so much for yet another wonderful performance!"
